For anyone who loves to write, and benefits from input from other budding authors, I highly recommend http://www.splinter4all.com.
This online community of writers provides opportunities in most genres: poetry, short fiction, creative non-fiction, memoirs and more. The folks in this group are generous in their time and kind in response to each others’ latest posting. I “met” them nearly 4 years ago and have enjoyed getting to know people from around the world, from Texas to Australia, they quickly become friends and family.
Come on in–the water’s fine.
